In 1941, Chrysler came out with the first all steel roof woodie wagon, called the Town & Country 4-door sedan. Less than 1,000 of this luxury vehicle were built, in 9 passenger and 6 passenger versions, for city or estate transportation. Chrysler wrote: “The celebrated 1941 Chrysler Town & Country would become the first luxury station wagon, appealing to affluent buyers with attractive design and interior fittings coupled to a larger and more refined cargo area than that found on competitor’s vehicles. Significantly, it was the industry’s first steel-roofed wagon. But to many this first Town & Country wasn’t a wagon at all, but rather a fastback sedan, a glamorous and soon-popular new type of car whose production run would sadly be limited to just 17 months by world events. After World War II, the Chrysler Town & Country name graced a line of elegant convertibles, sedans and hardtops – but no wagons (Plymouth was the only Chrysler division to produce station wagons in the immediate postwar period, again featuring wood bodies supplied by an outside vendor).”

The T & C woodies were only built from 1941 thru 1950, with none made during WWII (1942 thru most of 1946). These cars are highly respected and sought after.

This exceptional original example is a true survivor with a known history and the best wood we have ever seen on an unrestored Town and Country. The car has an honesty about it that is impossible to duplicate. Having been well preserved its entire life, everything is believed original including the top. Included with the car NOS chrome pieces that would replace some pitted pieces. The car runs and drives exceptionally well, its a turn key example ready for the road!

This is probably the only opportunity you will have to get a town and country in this fine state of preservation. The Chrysler Town and Country is one of the most iconic cars of all time and the convertible is of course the most desirable. Here is an opportunity to acquire probably the finest original example available auywhere.
